At least eight companies, including AOL, have now bailed on the misogynistic gasbag formerly known as Rush. The U.S. military isn't one of them, but female veterans are working on it. Meanwhile, Sandra Fluke dismissed Limbaugh's "apology" in her first TV  interview. More here and here on the bountiful apologies overdue from the guy who "puts the vile in juvenile."

Update: Make that 12. Of his remaining roughly 30 sponsors, many are reportedly planning to pull their ads.

Another: Two radio stations have now dropped his "show."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
